Scientists to make news at Computational Biology Conference

VIENNA, AUSTRIA -- July 17, 2007 -- Novel accomplishments will dot the landscape at a giant assembly of computational biologists in Vienna in mid-July. From new ways to discern how DNA folds into cell nuclei to possible treatments for diseases such as cancer, both basic and applied biology are getting a boost from researchers who call themselves bioinformaticians and whose "laboratories" are spread across chips and measured in terabytes.

Several of these reputed scientists will be available to present the highlights of the seven-day event at a press conference to be held on Sunday, July 22, at 10:00 A.M., in Room 02 A350 of the Austria Center Vienna. Science and medical writers receiving this announcement are all invited to attend. Summaries of major newsworthy research to be reported at the conference will be available, and interviews may be arranged with any of the keynote presenters and/or scientific organizers.

The meeting will draw scientists from all over the world. It is the second joint gathering of two major conferences: the 15th Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB, the annual meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology) will meet with the 6th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) at the Austria Center Vienna, from July 19th to 25th. The first joint conference was held in 2004 in Glasgow, with more than 2000 attendees. Vienna is on track to attract a similar numbers of attendees to ISMB/ECCB 2007.

The seven-day meeting begins when the site opens on Thursday, July 19, with seven special interest group meetings and one satellite meeting spanning two days. A selection of 14 half-day tutorials will be held on July 21 prior to the opening reception. Welcome ceremonies for the main meeting will be held on the morning of Sunday, July 22. In parallel with the plenary sessions of the main meeting, there will be several alternative, parallel "tracks" of
